Interior Secretary Zinke gets it. He knows that America’s hunters and anglers are the backbone of successful fish and wildlife management

Hunting and fishing have long been at the cornerstone of America’s outdoor heritage, with countless men and women participating in these cherished activities since our nation’s founding. 

Since the advent of modern fish and wildlife conservation, sportsmen have played a key role in funding conservation efforts at the national, state, and local levels. The reasoning for this is simple, and can be credited to America’s original conservationist, Theodore Roosevelt, an avid hunter, fisherman and NRA Life Member.

President Roosevelt recognized that our natural resources need to be responsibly utilized. To that end, he championed wildlife management based on scientific principles, an approach that serves as the foundation of our entire system.

Importantly, President Roosevelt also recognized that hunters and anglers were the lynchpin to the system’s success and serve as our nation’s greatest resource defenders. 

The revitalization of America’s wildlife resources marks the greatest conservation success story in history, ensuring that America’s wild spaces and the fish and wildlife species that rely on them can be enjoyed by all.

For the past eight years unfortunately, the Roosevelt model has been undermined by an out-of-control federal government. This is why the appointment of Ryan Zinke as Secretary of the Interior was celebrated by America’s hunting community and those who care about our wildlife resources.  If there ever was an Interior Secretary cut from the Roosevelt mold, it’s Ryan Zinke.
